    Spec's states it's good for motorcycle case halfs, I'd think you'd be fine..

    You can call them and see if that's the best product for your block...

    Re: Error 33 breaking my bike abroad- urgent help please

    Finally got the partzilla parts, and that permatex sealant.

    I've seen some guys from the States complaining about the prices getting higher and higher. Well, parts listed $260 on partzilla (also bought some Honda stuff apart from the FZ6 piston and rings) actually costed me around $390, after adding the shipping + VAT + import taxes + currency conversion fee. And if I bought locally, it would have cost $500-600...

    But now (I think) I got all the necessary parts. I'll try my best to squeeze in as much wrenching time as possible, as this month turns out to be the craziest at work.

    I haven't been around much. So it looks like piston dropped into the crank case area allowing oil ring to expand and raise hell? Uhg... painful to read parts of this.

    "Dropped" is a bit of an understatement, but mostly that's what I did to it.

    Pretty much everyone told me that they're surprised that I still didn't give up this project because they would have just parted it or sold as broken a long time ago. It's been frustrating at times (as proved by some of my previous posts) but I'm still determined to finish the project. I'm far from patient, but in the last years I've been working hard enough turning "nothing" to "something", constantly overcoming setbacks, that it now takes a lot more than a few curve balls on a rebuild to make me throw in the towel.

    Re: Error 33 breaking my bike abroad- urgent help please

    As for the painting process. Whatever they applied certainly wears like iron. As some of you know I took every remaining silver component off the otherwise Raven colored bike and media blasted it followed by lacquer thinner wipe and powder coated everything black.

    Other than knocking the shine off the otherwise silver part, the media didn't do much in the way of taking the paint off. That said if it weren't for the expense I would almost say it may in fact be some form of powder coating. But I can't imagine baking every part and expense that goes with the process. Then again, waiting for paint to cure is production time and space too!

    All that aside the powder coat application is what 4 or 5 years old now and holding up extremely well. No chipping, peeling, wear of anything.

    Much like the OEM stuff... Wears like iron!
